INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
 

Unfortunately once again the US Post Office has raised shipping rates. This year has seen a significant increase in postage costs. One of the most effective ways to reduce postage costs is to combine your orders into 1 large order. The US Post Office offers flat rate boxes, the smaller size can hold 6 Morning Sun sized books, while the larger box can hold about 10. After about 3 books, the flat rate box is a cheaper option then weight based packages- if you then fill the box, any books after the first 3 ship for no additional postage. If you have any questions about what will fit in a box do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help you out.
